After making a surprising No. 1 debut last week on the Christian Billboard album chart with the release of "Every Nation," Lindy Conant & The Circuit Riders remain at the top of the album chart this week at No. 2, while jumping three spots to No. 6 on Billboard's independent album chart. Lindy Conant & The Circuit Riders was also featured on Billboard.com last week, touting the success of their chart-topping album.
Conant is a previously unknown independent worship artist. This significant charting has been a surprise to the industry, but not to Rogue Music Alliance, the team behind Lindy. RMA is the brainchild of worship industry mainstays Gabriel Wilson and David Staley. Fueled by Wilson's production, Staley's social media marketing hackery and grassroots word of mouth momentum from the Circuit Riders, "Every Nation" also debuted on the Billboard Top 200 and at No. 19 on the Billboard digital albums charts - completely independent of physical retail distribution.
The members of Conant's band, The Circuit Riders, are Gem Ceniza, Spencer Brennt, Chloe Brennt, Daniel Bryan and Kendall Fowler.
Missionary, songwriter, worship leader - Conant is all three with one passion: to see every nation and every soul radically experience the love of Jesus. Her debut album, "Every Nation," is available everywhere digital music is sold or streamed.
Conant leads and serves with YWAM Circuit Riders, a missions ministry focused on leading a generation to Christ. For the past several years, their main focus has been at college campuses in the U.S. Their music reaches hundreds of campuses each year with seven bands comprised of over 60 musicians touring more than 100 college campuses, all performing songs written by Conant & The Circuit Riders.
As awareness has grown about Conant's passion for Christ, doors have flung open for her and The Circuit Riders. Conant has lead worship at some of the largest Christian gatherings, including Jesus Culture Conference and The Call Azusa Now at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Conant's message not only resonates with those who love worship music, but also with leaders of the largest worship movements in the world today. Jesus Culture founder/director Banning Liebscher called Conant "one of the most authentic and powerful worship leaders I know," while Bethel Music artist Steffany Gretzinger said of "Every Nation," "Your message is clear. It's unmistakable that you burn to lead a generation into total abandonment. You've drawn a line in the sand with your worship that is calling them to cross and never look back. To be a generation that can't be swayed or bought by anything the world is offering them."
